I feel that I have been a positive influence on this community for as long as I can remember. When no staff members were online, I watched by the hour to see how everyone else was doing, gave some advice, and helped a bit of the players on the server by obviously trading with them, handing them extra items as a sign of "Why not? You *probably* need it more anyways.", and giving information to players who ask general questions about the server, some functionalities, et cetera. I know a good number of people on the server, done business with them, and built up a relatively good reputation with the community, enough so that I'm greeted when I enter the server by some people. I've been taking computer classes for two years now, but unfortunately during that time I was limited to taking classes that did not give me coding ability; one of my weaknesses for obvious reasons. However, I practically skulk the server every day and log in at least 4-6 times a day to check up on things, and I keep an eye out for when things go in the wrong direction.
Fortunately, I also happen to type insanely fast and can react swiftly to situations in need in order to mitigate any additional problems the situation may have been able to cause. I'm on for at least 6-8 hours a day, and because I'm in the US Mountain Time Zone, I can be online when others cannot. I've seen people who take advantage of the limitations of the administrators and minge, hack, spam, whatever they can do to get on other people's backs and annoy them. At the time of writing, I currently have 1407 hours in TF2 and I'm not planning to quit any time soon. And besides, I need a new hobby anyways. Oh what fun it would be for me if I actually had something to do in my life that was worthwhile.
On Mondays - Fridays, I can be on from 3 PM to 10 PM, or even past that if required.
On Saturdays - Sundays, I can be on from 10 AM - 11 PM, or again, past that if required.
At the time of writing, I am currently 15 years old. A bit young, I agree, but I think the benefits outweigh the downsides.
If you haven't already noticed, I live in Arizona, so my timezone is (UTC-7:00) Arizona time.
I also have Discord on my phone in case I need to speak with anyone to discuss something.
My SteamRep profile also happens to be clean.
I have donated to the server before, evident by my existing maroon colored chat.
I have done 12 total hours of community service, and that was for a health class I took. Never really could find the time for it.
I have had only one past experience being staff on a server, and that was being a moderator for a server that had died out long ago in Garry's Mod. If it counts, I've also been awarded donor admin in a server I've quit to devote my time to TF2, and was only warned once and never given a strike. Didn't like the idea of people donating for admin, but I try to make the best of it.
This is the end of my application. I appreciate you taking the time to read it, and hope you seriously consider me as a viable option for a member of the staff.
